Arkells – Leather Jacket

With “Leather Jacket” off their newest album High Noon, Arkells dive into what they do best: creating relatable, catchy songs that you can sing along to. Telling the tale of a young woman trapped in an urban wasteland, the song resonates with the highs and lows of living without a care or hope in the world. It gives the listener a sense of nostalgia and it’s booming chorus is reminiscent of some of the best stuff from the early Arkells catalog. Check out the live version below:
